Book cover for How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain
Emotions are real, but not in the objective sense that molecules or neurons are real. They are real in the same sense that money is real—that is, hardly an illusion, but a product of human agreement.
Hannah Arendt
“Love, by its very nature, is unworldly, and it is for this reason rather than its rarity that it is not only apolitical but antipolitical, perhaps the most powerful of all antipolitical forces.”
Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition

“When choosing sexual partners, remember: Talent is not sexually transmittable.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Hannah Arendt
“Clichés, stock phrases, adherence to conventional, standardized codes of expression and conduct have the socially recognized function of protecting us against reality, that is, against the claim on our thinking attention that all events and facts make by virtue of their existence.”
Hannah Arendt, The Life of the Mind

Christopher Fry
“There may always be another reality to make fiction of the truth we think we've arrived at.”
Christopher Fry

Ursula K. Le Guin
“You can’t crush ideas by suppressing them. You can only crush them by ignoring them. By refusing to think, refusing to change.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia
